The American Cinemathque offers a double bill co-starring actor Bruno Ganz, who recently passed away.

NOSFERATU, THE VAMPYRE. 1979, 107 min, Dir: Werner Herzog. An homage to Murnau’s 1922 classic, Herzog’s NOSFERATU achieves its own hypnotic power by evoking a romantic past of waterfalls and mist-filled valleys, and through the eerie sensuality of Klaus Kinski’s performance. Like Aguirre and Fitzcarraldo, Kinski’s Nosferatu is driven by the need for an unknowable spiritual ecstasy - in this case, Isabelle Adjani’s ethereal Lucy. With Bruno Ganz.

THE AMERICAN FRIEND. 1977, 125 min, West Germany, Dir: Wim Wenders. When mild-mannered frame maker Jonathan (Bruno Ganz) learns he is dying, his art-smuggling friend Ripley (Dennis Hopper) comes up with a diabolical idea: Jonathan should become a mob hit man in order to make money for his estate. Working from Patricia Highsmith's novel RIPLEY'S GAME, Wim Wenders creates one of his finest films, a noir set in an urban milieu where morality seems to be crumbling away before the characters' very eyes. With Nicholas Ray and Samuel Fuller. In German with English subtitles.
